5 Photo-Ready Spots In Charleston To Liven Up Your Instagram Feed

Charleston, SC is not only one of the most beautiful cities — it's the absolute perfect mix of historical sites and modern architecture. And for that reason alone, it's one of my favorite cities in the world.

From Folly Beach to the Market, Charleston is home to so much diverse life and rich culture. With move-in weekend approaching fast for CofC, I decided to highlight some of the best features Charleston has to offer.

1. The Market

The Market in Charleston has always been my favorite spot to visit in Charleston. Every year when my family takes our annual vacation to Charleston, we always stop by the market to see all the vendors and grab our favorite Green Tea in all of the South. The Market was first built in 1790 and has been growing and changing ever since. The Market is a tourist icon for Charleston and a must-visit for everyone.

2. The Battery

The Battery itself is almost indescribably beautiful. The view at sunset is beyond amazing and the houses that line the battery are exceptionally unique. Seeing all the carriages ride by and watching the dolphins swim past is the perfect way to end your trip to Charleston.

3. Citadel

Besides the intricate parades that take place every Friday afternoon and the rich history, the Citadel is definitely a must visit. The unique architecture offers you a glimpse inside one of the most prestigious military college in the South. The atmosphere inside the campus is definitely something you have to witness first hand.

4. King St

King St is one of two streets that run through the edge of the city to the Battery. Besides the amazing shopping opportunities, King St holds a street fair every third sunday of the month which is definite must see.

5. Folly Beach

Folly Beach is THE beach hangout. Folly Beach has definitely grown into a pretty chill spot for college students and offers a ton beach side restaurants and shops.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
